The Really Regenerative Centre CIC

A learning centre dedicated to facilitating the emergence of a regenerative economy.

PEOPLE | PLACE | POTENTIAL

Our mission is to reconnect people to the place in which they live and work, and to help communities, projects and businesses find ways to bring a regenerative economy into being.

————————————————-

We exist to help you drive change towards revitalised communities, regenerative economies, vibrant environments and trusted institutions.

Our Work

INCLUSIVE CO-DESIGN & ENGAGEMENT

We help you design and host successful stakeholder and community engagements that build long-term relationships.

COLLECTIVE INTELLIGENCE

We co-design stakeholder engagements to ensure strategy, research, ideas are surfaced collaboratively through creative discussion.

THE POWER OF PLACE

There is something both aspirational and possible in our minds when we consider systemic change from a perspective of place. 

REGENERATIVE ECONOMIES

We help you find key nodal points in strategic local economic plans that shift towards a regenerative economic system.

DOUGHNUT DISTRICTS

We help cities & towns, developers and estate owners to use Kate’s Doughnut to drive regenerative strategies and build community.

A JUST & SAFE SPACE FOR HUMANITY

We co-design stakeholder engagements to ensure strategy, research, ideas are surfaced collaboratively through creative discussion.

LEARNING JOURNEYS

We design and host learning journeys for leaaders who want to embrace the opportunity of regenerative design and culture.

Fields of Focus

CITIES & TOWNS

We work with regional, city and municipal authorities to help

  • design and adapt economic strategy
  • apply Doughnut Economics
  • test urban acupuncture
  • re:define their story through our Power of Place programmes
  • design skills development programmes

ISLAND COMMUNITIES

We have a particular fascination for islands. They are unique containers within which innovation and experimentation on regenerative approaches to economies work. We work with regional, city and municipal authorities to help

  • design and adapt economic strategy
  • apply Doughnut Economics
  • re:define their story through our Power of Place programmes
  • design Learning Journeys

ESTATES & LANDOWNERS

Like islands, estates are unique containers within which innovation and experimentation on regenerative approaches to economies work. Estate managers – from the National Trust to World Heritage sites to small private estates, face particular challenges in adapting to future economic change. We work with estate owners to:

  • re:define their story through our Power of Place programmes
  • re:develop thriving economic relationships with their stakeholder communities
  • design Learning Journeys for their communities

DESTINATIONS

Destinations – such as islands, towns, regions, venues, experiences –  that are highly dependent on tourism, have experienced a deep and lasting shock. Radical new approaches are needed.  We work with destination managers to:

  • re:define their story through our Power of Place programmes
  • re:develop thriving economic relationships with their stakeholder communities
  • design Learning Journeys for their communities

DEVELOPERS & CONSTRUCTION

Our built environment has an opportunity to re:define itself and its impact on our future. It is critical to find more aspiring pioneers who want to implement regenerative design into their processes and the end experience they create for people and planet. We work with developers, architects, planners and construction companies to:

  • explore how and where they can implement a shift to regenerative design
  • re:define their story through our Power of Place programmes
  • design Learning Journeys for their communities

Bringing People & Place together to Activate Potential

How do we come together to activate the systemic changes we need to the way in which humans inhabit this planet – this place – we call home?  This question is at the heart of our work at Really Regenerative.

We work to regenerate and reconnect a thriving pattern of life between people and place in a way that allows the best future potential for all life to thrive.

To achieve that we believe we must look at the role a busienss, community or project plays in the interconnected systems that surround it. We seek out the acupuncture points for positive change that will ensure we heal the story of separation between people and planet. We curate, facilitate and help navigate the challenging conversations of how the systems we currently live in need to change in order to create a new story of togetherness and potential.

“It remains an unalterable truth that, just as a sound mind depends on a sound body, so the health of cities depends on the health of rural areas. …To restore a balance between cities and rural life is perhaps the greatest task in front of modern man”
